Nickelodeon has signed on to serve as the official broadcaster in the US for the Power Rangers television series through 2018, following a new deal extension with L.A.-based Saban Brands.

With the new agreement in place, the companies have announced that the 23rd season of the popular action/adventure franchise, Power Rangers Dino Super Charge, will premiere on Nickelodeon at 12 p.m. (Et/PT) on January 30, and the 24th season, Power Rangers Ninja Steel, will debut on the channel in 2017 with Chip Lynn returning as executive producer.

The 23rd season continues the fan-favorite Dino Charge theme, which was featured in last year’s 22nd season after a 10-year absence. It will make history by uniting 10 Rangers on the same team for the first time ever in a new quest to save the universe.

Meanwhile, next year’s Power Rangers Ninja Steel is set in space and follow a new crop of heroic teenage Rangers, who become the target of the villainous Zircon for possessing a mythical crystal, which if controlled, provides the power of invincibility.

Following the premiere of the 23rd season, new eps will air every Saturday at 12 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon US.

Power Rangers continues to be one of the longest-running live-action kids series on TV. And on the heels of the new season premiere, a feature film will hit US theaters on July 16 from Saban partner Lionsgate.

The deal extension with Nick comes after last summer’s departure of Saban Brands co-founder/president Elie Dekel and the arrival of Janet Hsu as CEO and Rich Magallanes as SVP of development and production.
